So far, so good
Great traction and the price was right, but with that great traction comes shortened lifespan.

I get 6000 miles out of the front on KTM 1190
No one ever criticizes the performance of the TKC80 - it's always the tread life they criticize. I get 6000 miles, however my KTM 1190 has lots of electronic stuff such as front ABS and wheelie control in certain modes. So...sometimes when I wheelie too high, it will bring the front end down pretty hard by cutting power. At 6000 miles, I had some good knobs and some worn knobs...not sure how that happened as it was gradual and I did not lose knobs - some just wore faster than others. Not sure if the worn knobs are from when I come down off a wheelie and suddenly the wheel has to instantly increase speed when it contacts the pavement??? Never-the-less, I could not feel it in the front end, or the dirt or street performance and at 6000 miles, I did not care.

KLR650 Utah Front Tire!
Love this tire for any Utah adventure, it's great for road, dirt, sand, rock, and even snow and ice (which I don't recommend). No complaints so far and had it on for one season.

Good 50/50 tire
I used this as a front tire on my KTM 950SE. Acceptable both on pavement and off. It shows as directional but I swapped it after 2000 miles and that minimized uneven tread block wear with no downside I could tell. My previous TKC80 became unusable at 3000 miles due to weird tread block wear. Got 4000+ miles by turning it around

Great Tire - Great Price
I have TKC80's on my 2005 F650GS Dakar; these tires work well for any surface including offroad. The tires hook up when the going gets slick (greasy mud in the rain, Moab - Slick Rock).

The tires have a decent life - about 4,000 miles for a rear - 2 rears per front. I'm sure you could get more life out of the tire if you strictly ran the road - but what fun is that :)

This tire has a heavy - thick carcass which minimizes cuts or punctures.

Great compromise for all around on road/off road.

Very disappointed with the tires performance and tread life. Used them on the Trans America Trail this summer and they wore out faster than fellow riders with Dunlop 606 tires.

Hey guys, I have an 08 Honda crf230l and want to use the tkc80 on it. I see that it says the 90/90-21 is tubeless, but I will need to use a tube. I do not go high speeds and if I do, the bike can't do much more than 70. I am mostly dirt road and some street. Would I be ok running a tube in this tire? Also the rear is 120/80-18, and the closest I see is the 120/90-18. Thoughts on that? Thanks!
Seth J on Nov 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You should be fine. Some TKC 80s- maybe all- are tube/non-tube specific. But, it won't matter with that little bike you're on. Also, the TKC is a soft walled tire, which will be nice for that bike. The sizing shouldn't make much difference. It's hard to say what you're referring to, but a 120/90 is going to have a slightly greater circumference than a 120/80 possibly leaning to tire rub on the rear fender. Not likely, however.
